Not so long ago in Accra, the capital and most populous city of Ghana, a young woman was born. Her mother named her `Efuah` which naturally means `born on a Friday`. A quick calendar check proves that indeed she was born on a beautiful Friday. Like any other African girl, Rita Efuah Ainsoh-Agabos grew up with so many dreams for herself and for her family.

Going for the more difficult career path…

Whilst most of her age mates settled comfortably in the pursuit of ordinary careers, Rita chose a slightly more difficult avenue: aviation. Aviation is an industry that is highly capital intensive to get a qualification in and it is also hugely male dominated. A good example of the gender imbalance in the industry is the number of female pilots in the world. Statistics have shown that out of the over 135 000 pilots in the world, only about 4,000 are women. That is much less than 5% of the total! This imbalance means that young women like Rita have to fight a lot of stereotyping in this male-dominated field.

But this does not deter this bright and beautiful girl who aspires to become a Flight Attendant. She still wants to be involved in the adventure of flight and seeks greater things for the aviation industry at large. Her determination proves that challenges can be conquered and that you have to be daring to shine in your own way.

A beauty with brains….

Rita Efuah

The ever-smiling Rita is not just a beauty but is a beauty with brains. She proudly holds an Associate Diploma in Marketing from the University of Professional Studies. There she studied key modules like Work Integrated Learning, Computer Literacy and Applied Marketing Psychology. As if that is not enough, she also holds a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Knutsford University College. When we asked her what her Professional Objective is, she intelligently replied,

I aspire to contribute my hardworking personality, my experience in delivering excellent customer service and my passion for the aviation industry to ensuring every passenger leaves our aircraft fully satisfied and happy, having had a unique and memorable flying experience from start to finish.”

Isn’t she lovely? This is different from what most young aviation enthusiasts want. Most aspiring aviators are focused on what they can get out of the industry – for example, flying a big jet aircraft from city to city or earning a lion`s share of a salary from an airline job. Rita has done well in her professional objective by focusing more on what passengers want, making them a priority and not herself.

Rita speaks three languages fluently – English, French and Akan. Akan refers to the language of the Akan ethnic group of Ghana. It is also spoken in the central and eastern part of Cote d’Ivoire. She is a shy character but when it comes to professional communication, you will be surprised at the excellent communication and interpersonal skills that she has.

  3. Into the dim lit, bare walls of different countries but one people. Out of nowhere, I chanced into yadley.com on Facebook. Not only did I bump into them, they brought me hope and made me see my dream from a different perspective. Of intelligence, charm and of personality, with tender coaching, yadley.com added meaning to my aviation dreams. I look upon all these fondly, then I thought of bringing forth a thankful note of which yadley.com walks in these halls with me.

    My connection with you has become a part of my world now; it has its special place within my being and heart. Your name hangs right beside my smiling face at this very moment, remembering just how you have worked on my CV and making me your high flyer girl of the month of October, 2017.

    I’m thankful for the light you’ve shown on my path so far. I may not remember everything you’ve done for me but I will definitely remember how special you make me feel today. To me, no duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.

    Thank You for being such a wonderful friend, coach and motivator. Thank you for believing in my dreams and for having full confidence in me. I will surely land a job aviation and I shall make you proud……I promise you nothing but success in my pursuit of living my dreams.

    I appreciate you a lot.
    Rita.
